The race took place in heats, in order to keep the track less crowded. All the women went first. All 11 of us… It was 25 laps around the 200-meter track. It was very boring. Since they got the gym at the last minute, there was no music (and I didn’t turn on my phone music because no one else had theirs). Everyone was so hardcore! Most of the girls were really fast and quickly lapped me. But I kept going on.
I ended up finishing in 31:15, which, looking back at my records, gives me a PR of a real (non-virtual) 5k race! I think it was because there were no hills. Just flat going around and around. I ended up winning 3rd in my age group – and I won a cherry pie!!! My first age group win! Yay! And do you notice my new Sparkle Skirt? Very comfortable and cute 🙂
The race was well organized and everyone was really friendly. Even though there were some big competitors, everyone was nice and easy-going.
I was certainly glad to have had this race rescheduled, and running inside was an interesting experience. I won’t rule out another indoor race, but I don’t think I am ready for an indoor marathon!
Happy Birthday George Washington!
